Could we see an electric-powered bus soon?

YES! I’M FINALLY BACK TO POSTING ON A REGULAR BASIS! I apologize for any inconvenience caused by my recent period of downtime.

No, it’s not a Sci-Fi plot. There are plans already in the works to introduce an electric powered public transit bus.

Let me say that again, THIS IS AN 100% ELECTRIC POWERED BUS, NOT A HYBRID.

In fact, the wave of the future could be coming to many cities real soon! That’s because there is a prototype is set to roll out in the Tri-Cities area of Washington (state) by the end of this year! If the testing phase is deemed a success, we could see this bus go into regular transit service all over the country! I can already imagine this bus operating in various transit districts.

Want to know more? Be sure to read Zac Ziegler’s recent post about the project.

Warmest Regards,
